Pick Your Own Pumpkins! 

Pumpkin Patch Colchester and Basildon Pumpkin picking
SAT NAV - Colchester CO6 3PR Basildon SS15 4ER 
We’ve been growing and harvesting pumpkins for over 10 years now and then one day we thought... why not open the farm up and let our customers pick their own perfect pumpkin directly from the field! So that is what we did and you loved it! 
Great news our Pumpkin Patches in 2020 will be OPEN with some slight changes due to Covid-19.  
*New for 2020*- We are operating an online booking system to limit and control the number of customers on the Pumpkin Patch for your safety. To help with this we are opening on 26th and 27th September, 3rd and 4th October, 10th and 11th October and then everyday from 17th October- 31st October so please visit during the early weeks if you can. Everyone needs a ticket (except babies in arms) NO TICKET NO ENTRY.  
We are not sure whether we will be open right though to Halloween due to weather and stock avalibility so we advise you to book early to avoid disappointment. 
This is a new system for this year in light of Covid-19, so we do ask for your co-operation while us farmers work out how to keep you all safe, while also ensuring you can enjoy some lovely outdoor family fun at our Pumpkin Patch 
Unfortunately, we cannot allow dogs at the Pumpkin Patch due to Health and Safety
Please see our Pumpkin Patch FAQ page for information about your visit and to see what the pumpkin patch is. 
Every year we are lucky enough to have some famous faces visit our patches. Last year the lovely Denise Van Outen and Alison Hammond from ITV's This Morning visited! Who will you spot this year...?

Wet Weather Gauge!

What about the rain?? 
The rain is great to help make our pumpkins grow into perfect ‘pumpkin’ giants, but can also give us lots of mud when we have our pumpkin patches open.  
Please make sure you check our wet weather rain gauge on our website or facebook page before you come to make sure we are open so the wannabe witches and wizards can whizz through the fields to find their pumpkins. 
Follow us on Twitter and Facebook for the latest updates on the patches and the weather! 
We are giving away up to100 free pumpkins in October at our pumpkin patches!
